They were super quick and simple to make (my kind of dessert).
Here's what you need:
- 2 cups butter (4 squares) at room temperature
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 4 cups flour
- Chocolate chips, or baking chocolate squares
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
First, mix together the butter and sugar until it begins to mix together (do not overmix, you don't want the butter to begin melting).
Add in vanilla and mix just until incorporated.
Roll out chilled dough till it is approx 1/2" thick, and cut out your cookie shapes with a cookie cutter. Try to handle the dough as minimally as possible while rolling and moving to cookie sheet to keep the dough chilled.
Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are slightly golden. Do not over bake.
Sprinkle the warm chocolate, and set out on wire rack to cool.
Enjoy! I feel so carnivorous biting these little guys ears off, but they just taste so good!
